Everyone who knew Pat always referred to her as Mamaw. She loved to sit and drink her coffee outside. She loved old country music and loved to brag on her children and grandchildren. Pat would always tell everyone that she wanted to be propped upside a tree in the mountains of her childhood home in Kettle Island, Kentucky, however, we went with the legal route and used a funeral home.
Details of a memorial service will be forthcoming.
